Description: The culinary cornerstone in the heart of Whistler Village, Araxi enjoys a long held international reputation for excellence in food, wine and hospitality. As an early pioneer of farm to table dining, Executive Chef James Walt's seasonally focused menus celebrate the excellence of locally sourced ingredients. Walt's innovative and skillfully executed dishes-from savoury starters through delicious desserts-deliver intelligent compositions and unforgettable flavours. Centrally located in the main square of the village, Araxi boasts a contemporary dining room coloured in warm earth tones - and a sleek Oyster Bar that exudes the passion and craftsmanship that lie at the heart of the restaurant. The lively lounge, which features a year-round indoor/outdoor bar, is Whistler's favourite gathering place for both locals and visitors alike.

“Nice setting but food average”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

We really liked the feel of the restaurant but we were not blown away by the food. We have done a fair bit of fine dining in our time and it was just a little average for us. Staff were very attentive.

“Great meal and location”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Can't get much better than a tiered seafood dish on ice with fresh oysters, mussels, shrimp, salmon, dungeness crab rolls accompanied by an Okanagan sauvignan blanc. We also tasted some local sockeye salmon and toro sashimi. Wow, amazing seafood; and, on a nice day/evening, outdoor seating in the heart of Whistler Village.

“Overpriced, under delivered!!!!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

8.22.13: Well, where do I begin. We were seated outside which was very nice. Our waiter was sarcastic, and he couldn't get out of his own way. Our appetizer was 2 pieces of fried stuffed zucchini for $17.50--REALLY? Our meal, sable fish and halibut, both tasteless (we added salt and we never add salt) and each left us feeling as though we needed something else in our mouth to help us feel as though we just ate "food." We have no problem paying for a good meal, but this did not even come close to anything international nor culinary. Tables around us had other wait staff and their customers seemed much happier than we were, but regardless, the food was very sub par compared to the other TA reviews.

“Amazing”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

The food is excellent, service is amazing. Yes it's expensive but worth every penny. Open later than most of the other restaurants during the week.
